Woohoo, new news for Vampire Prosecutor 2! The show had previously reported about a second season, but the months of silence on the matter had me a little concerned that the project would fade away.
According to a rep from OCN, the sequel to the stylish, buzzworthy crime-paranormal-procedural drama will be coming back to the cable station. The series hasn’t been given a timeslot yet, but chances are good that it’ll be in the Sunday night slot (like the first season) after God’s Quiz 3, which is the drama following Hero. They’re looking at getting back all of the original cast, which would include so-cool-he’s-hot hero Yeon Jung-hoon, who positively sizzled in the first season—and then knocked you dead with his adorable boyish charm.
Vampire Prosecutor was one of cable’s biggest hits, across all channels; its finale episode drew an average rating of 3.34%, with minute-by-minute ratings topping out at 4.3%. The number of cable shows that have brought similar numbers—heck, that have topped 2%, much less 3%—is pretty tiny; more cable programs have faltered than soared, sadly. So it makes sense to bring the show back, in addition to the fact that the procedural/mystery format is perfect for expanding into another season.
Add to that the fact that Vampire Prosecutor was one of the most stylish dramas I’ve seen, AND that the director is currently doing a bang-up job for tvN’s fusion drama Queen In-hyun’s Man, I am totally ready for Season 2.
